About Podcast Series
Sports is a business, just like every other at the moment, experiencing accelerated change and complex problems. Are you clear about the shift in the sports sector from pre-digital age skills '3.0' to digital age skills '4.0’? Do you understand the demands on leadership capacity and capability in the sports industry and your game?

The State of Play podcast series is tailored digital media produced for next-generation leaders in sport. We critically analyse sports leadership by going below the visible surface-level behaviours, dynamics and actions. Only by exploring the hidden drivers shaping and impacting sports’ visible surface can the real ‘state of play’ be understood.

Topics/subjects covered can include; behaviour, change, disruption, socio-cultural elements, leadership, strategy, performance, management, operations, technology and generational issues.
